This Month's Kicker
It was New Years Eve 1999 and approaching midnight. I was playing with my wife at Caesars and I remember the talk was all about the Millenium and Y2K and if the machines were all going to go black at the turn of the century.
We were about to wrap up our play and head to a countdown celebration event when my wife goes and hits an annoying gonna-make-us-late hand pay (royal flush dollars). 15 minutes to midnight and she was nervous if the machines went out, would we get paid? Well, she got paid very quickly after only about 2 minutes. It was funny, the staff seemed nervous as well.
We ended up skipping the celebration party and grabbing a drink at the bar to watch the countdown. 3...2...1... and all was well. A wonderful way to start the next thousand years!
